Oh, summer, why must you make me long for a beach vacation when the best we can do right now is a trip to a riverfront restaurant? If I can’t get to the beach I’ll just have to wear my floral mumu-ish Mrs. Roper dress anyway, to get a little taste of what a vacation would feel like. I hope you’ve relaxed a bit near water already, and that I am right behind you.
I don’t exactly hunt for vintage dresses with fruit splashed across them, even if they might match my little corner of the internets…. But when I ran across this vintage 80′s dress covered in all kinds of fruit I didn’t argue with the Universe. I scooped it right up. Fruit is refreshing on a warm day, and so was this little black dress. Something new (and thriftily priced) always makes me feel a bit better. Here’s to lemonade and lemon dresses, friends! What little surprising find has happened in your world lately?

There’s nothing like a nice long weekend filled with shopping, swimming pools, and relaxed dinners out to signal the start of summer. The hubs and I started to wonder where the Little Lemondrop should swim this summer, so we researched a local country club. Let’s just say if we had the extra money to spend on the dues it required we might just build our own swimming pool. So while we ponder our pool-less plight we’ll settle for the next best thing. The poor girl’s vacation friend, a plastic wading pool. Considering I was wearing a thrifted dress and a vintage necklace (tres tacky) this weekend my membership application may have been denied anyway. So, plastic pool at Chez Lemondrop it is for now. And guess what? No one complained at all. Hope your weekend was filled with friends, sunscreen and rest.
